Dulce de Leche or Arequipe Brownies

Brownies con Dulce de Leche

Dishes made with dulce de leche have a special place in my heart. Maybe it’s because it makes everything taste really good. Today I have a special treat for you.

About a month ago my son asked me to make some brownies. So I decided to add dulce de leche to the brownies and let me tell you, it was a great decision…they were fantastic! I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!

Buen provecho!

    Is the recipe missing some sort of Baking powder or soda? I’m trying to make these and am thinking that might be missing.

    I tried to make brownis for the first time using this recipe. I mixed all the ingredients as as described and after I took the brownies out of the oven I let them rest for 5 minutes and then placed them in the fridge over night. But this morning the brownies were really hard (like a rock). But the flavor of was really good.
    I want to try to make them again? but wanted to ask you.
    Is the recipe missing some sort of Baking powder or soda? Is there something I did wrong? what do u mean with prepared baking pan?
